Why Did Microsoft Pull The Surface Pro Firmware Downloads?


I’ve been sending folks to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38826 to grab all the drivers and firmware for their Surface Pro 3 (but all other Pro SKU’s were there too).

Suddenly, folks in the Community Forums http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/surfpro3-surfupdate/surface-pro-3-drivers-link-website-down/c9338aaf-ecb4-48d4-923b-7e8c0dcc2daa?msgId=21c2cf86-9c67-44e0-b2a0-4b6ef5615c98 are reporting that the link has gone missing – for all countries.

You can see what the page looked like via Google’s cache at http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:oZEV6eFNXdEJ:www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx%3Fid%3D38826+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us 


But the downloads themselves appear to have been pulled as well.
